Cast: 3m., 2w. (1 storyteller, extras.) Everyone was happy because they were trying to make everyone else happy—except the princess. She wasn't happy because all she could think about was herself. A visiting prince isn't happy either because what he wants is to slay a dragon and there just aren't any around. The stage manager steps into this situation with a dragon tail which he waves from behind a bush. Then the princess, moved by strange emotions, does something extremely unselfish. She puts herself out as dragon-bait to give the prince his longed-for opportunity. One ext. set. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
